These situation might trigger military conflicts between the two countries in the near future.
Therefore, the U.S. military forces should not withdraw from Japan to protect the country from being attacked by mighty Chinese troops.
The U.S. -Japan security agreement must highly evaluated. The destiny of Japan depends too much on the American troops stationed in the country. Their existence can menace the country which has highly sophisticated weapons.
I look forward to reading Pro`s arguments in Round 2.
I agree that Japan needs our troops to deal with their neighboring countries, but the japanese residents aren't happy with our troops staying there. U.S. troops are taking over 20 percent of the land in the air base in Okinawa. Okinawa is a urban city, and having the Futenma air base there can creating tensions between the American Marines and the Japanese residents.
The Americans commited acts of sexual crimes and many cases where there were drunk marines. (1) Aircraft accidents can be detrimental because many people will be hurt if it happens in an urban cities. These problems occur becuase of how densely populated Okinawa. 1.3 million people living with 27,000 U.S. troops. In an densely populated place like this, noise can be a problem. (2) Studies show that infants are negatively affected by noise pollution. They are born with impaired hearing and abnormal behavior.
However, Japanese people must keep in mind that China has the hatred feelings toward Japan.
The reason is that Japan has not apologized for the wrongdoings done by the Japanese military forces during World War Second. Therfore, the present tension surrounding Senkaku islands might develop into the war between China and Japan. Japan needs urgently the U.S. military forces to protect the country from being destroyed by China.
Japanese people and Government leaders must recognize that Japan has not its own military forces.
Thank you for reading my arguments.
